It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection.

Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared.

Obama Plan Would End NSA Bulk Data Collection, reads the headline from the New York Post. That sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?

Clifford speculated that the issue could enter the 2016 presidential election, with libertarian Republican Rand Paul and independent Bernard Sanders taking special interest […]
